Red Carpet - CFDA Awards 2013

Red Carpet Fashion
CFDA Awards 2013

The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) held their annual awards event last night in New York City. Among the honorees were Philip Lim, Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang and Proenza Schouler. But what we were really wondering is what all the models, actresses and starlets wore...here is the round-up. Click on the pics for a larger view.

 Sofia Vergara showed off her curves in a form fitting emerald green Herve L. Leroux gown with plunge neck and elaborate choker. Kerry Washington donned a sunflower yellow Jason Wu gown with matching waistband. Diana Sanchez went ultra violet in a strapless asymmetrical gown with gold side panels. Ireland Baldwin kept it classic in a cardinal red David Meister Signature dress. Hanneli Mustaparta brought along her unique sense of style in a diaphanous saffron Calvin Klein dress with flowing cape.

Little Black Dresses
Jessica Chastain was simplistic chic in a Givenchy LDB. Kata Mara opted for a circular crochet cut-out Dolce & Gabbana mini dress with emerald necklace. Rose Byrne represented Thakoon in a sequined apron dress with sheer lace underlay. Rooney Mara stuck to her goth style in a lace Calvin Klein dress with high-low hemline.

Champagne Socialists
Designer Erin Fetherston was charming in a champagne and gold empire-waist gown from her own line. Lily Aldridge wore a simple strapless ivory jacquard dress by The Row, keeping all the focus on those red fluttery kitten heels. Hailee Steinfeld looked age-appropriate in a a sweet printed ensemble by Suno. Olivia Palermo was fringed in a cream Dennis Basso dress with gold embellished bodice, her neon metallic heels and printed clutch are both by Zara.

Design Duos
Carly Cushnie & Michelle Ochs wore slinky red and yellow cut-out dresses from their own label, Cushnie et Ochs. Elizabeth Olsen wore a black suit from her sister's line The Row, while Mary Kate chose a vintage Issey Mikaye dress. Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman were opulent in creations from their brand, Marchesa.

Model Mode
Candice Swanepoel went for a trendy draped look by Prabal Gurung, with sequin embellished panels, a wide black belt and edgy leather strap sandals. Hilary Rhoda was monochromatic in a geometric draped dress by Helmut Lang, with Jimmy Choo sandals. Jessica Hart was dressed by Rachel Roy in a white cut-out one-strap bodysuit top with taupe lace pencil skirt.

Jet Black
Linda Evangelista wore a dramatic tier-frilled strapless gown by Oscar de la Renta. Constance Jablonski looked elegant in a sheer chiffon J. Mendel dress with band-strapped bodice. Karlie Kloss went for a modern look by Cushnie et Ochs, wearing a patent black leather fitted plunge bodice with softer satin skirt. 

Cocktail Frocks
Juliette Lewis was outfitted by Zac Posen in this peach 50's style A-line frock with wide neck and burgundy heels. Jessica Stam made a vivid appearance in a canary yellow peplum dress by Rebecca Minkoff, styled with PVC Louboutin ankle-cuff sandals. Miranda Kerr wore a winning look by Proenza Schouler, in a blue and teal green silk printed mini dress. Ashley Madekwe was chic in an aqua Cushnie et Ochs over-the-knee dress with cut-away waist.

Blank Slate
Brazilian beauty Alessandra Ambrosio looked sophisticated in a white one-shouldered Kaufman Franco dress with side slit. Supermodel Joan Smalls opted for snow white romance in a strapless Givenchy gown with full skirt. Erin Wasson was futuristic in an illusion bodice column gown with liner cut-outs by Alexander Wang

Mixed Metals
Cody Horn sparkled in a look by Michael Kors, with silver crystal studded mini dress & long black peplum train. Karolina Kurkova stopped traffic in a tiny metallic silver shorts set by Michael Kors. Nicole Richie wore a molten bronze dress by Marc Jacobs. Ellie Kemper was dressed in a Naeem Khan black dress, scattered with gold beaded starbursts. Adriana Lima kept everyone guessing in a shimmering sequin printed dress with sheer skirt by Givenchy.

Paulina DeVil said...

hey, i'm back once again! i just can't post regularly... i try though!
and yeah you're right i don't wear dresses a lot. i love them though and i have loads, i should really wear them more often!

i looove the "jet black" and "cocktail frocks" styles because two things i really love are dramatic gothic clothes and cute girly/ladylike clothes. doesn't really go well together i know, but i still love both styles to bits, haha. xx

Denisa said...

I loove colors so that dresses are very nice. Have a great day.

Demi Mist said...

Very beautiful dresses!
I usually like champagne colour on evening dresses, but this time I also liked the coloured ones.

gigi said...

love that one that Diana Sanchez is wearing but all of these dresses sure are lovely Ashley Madewke's is my other fav since I love the color mint! thanks for sharing this! xx. gigi. www.gigikkitchen.blogspot.com

Unknown said...

The olsen twins are my best fashion icons, love them style so much! Love that black suit so muc, not everytime they have to wear dresses!:)

Heather Nixon said...

Rose Byrne looks amazing :)


Cinnamon and White Chocolate said...

this time I'm not impressed with some of the outfits... for instance the Olsen twins look like they are going to the funeral and Linda Evangelista looks totally strange... even Olivia Palermo (who I adore) didn't really come true the way she usually does, if you know what I mean. For me, the best dressed girls this time are the models :)
p.s. I have replied to your comment on my last post, so take a look if you like. :)

Unknown said...

que bonitos todos!!!

Style Servings said...

I adored Heilee's look, as well as Nicole Richie's. Great overview as usual :) x

aki! said...

All the ladies in white looked amazing. And are the Olsen twins actually different heights?

To answer your question, chicken and waffles tastes exactly how you'd expect it to. I honestly don't think that they're an amazing blend of flavors and textures. I agree that it's a little weird combo.

Stephanie said...

Elly @ Caribbean Living said...

Wow, these are all totally stunning Sam! I'm loving the Colourific and Mixed Metals sets the best - Sofia in emerald and Nicole in bronze get my votes. Such inspirational fashion here, love it all!

Unknown said...

Joan Small is my favourite, even though mostly all of them look great.
The purity in the chosen white colour and the line of the dress is more than perfect for her body.
I love the tiny and bold look of Karolina too!
Hope your week is going great!

Audrey Allure said...

Love all of the looks, especially the cute cutouts!

Ceciliette said...

Sofia Vergara, Rooney Mara and Alessandra Ambrosio are the gorgeous ones. They are just so beautiful! Too bad there are not too many socialites featured in these events anymore.

Candice's model dress is just gorgeous!

Trendy Teal

The Chic Sheet said...

I love that Karolina took a risk with shorts!!


Sue Westrell said...

I love all of these gowns, but metallics and bright colors are collectively my favorites. They're all so lovely... Lily Aldridge's outfit would be my least favorite, if I had to pick one, simply because her pose combined with the dress and the attention grabbing-ness of the shoes to look really awkward, and I was just tired enough that it confused my eyes for a bit too long, but blinking a few times helped to get the image to make visual sense, and the shoes and dress are quite lovely.

Erin Wasson's dress is amazing!

Danny said...

margaret cruzemark said...

Moscow Blogger said...

I like cobalt dress and Karolina Kurkova look and love Olsens

Jacy said...

Fantastic wrap-up! There were so many looks to cover and you did a fabulous job. Where to start... I don't typically like Sophia Vergara's fashion choices because they're often somewhat generic to me, but I thought she looked incredible. I really enjoyed Candice Swanepoel's and Hilary Rhoda's slightly asymmetrical dresses! I also liked Joan Small's and Ashley Madekwe's more simplistic dresses as well!


Miss fashionmix said...

It was very easy to read your post! Love how you sorted all outfits!
Amazing looks, the only thing I didn't understand is Lily Aldridge's shoes...strange choice...
Hugs and kisses from Shanghai!

tres chic chica said...

Hey Sam! Great coverage of all the dresses! I only seem a couple. So many beautiful dresses, gowns, colors, makeup everything! Sofia V looks skinner than usual but flawless none the less, love ALL the LBD's, Miranda K the dress is boxes but pretty, Ashley M is a bombshell! love the color of the dress with the white pumps. Nicole Richie is sexier than ever! Thanks for stopping by darling. Always good to hear from you.
